2021-2022 BEGINNING BAND INFORMATION
To learn more about Being Part of the Band, including instrument demonstrations and the positive benefits for students and families through studying music, please click on the following link: Centerville Junior High Band
Once students have decided which instrument they want to play, signing up for band is very simple! A separate form has been sent by the junior high school where students indicate which band (or choir) class they want to take (please write in their top two choices of instruments). Return the form back to their classroom teacher before Friday, May 21st. It’s that easy!
When we return in August, those students enrolled in band will have a personal instrument “fitting” where they can tryout their chosen band instrument and confirm that’s the one for them. Then during band class in August, we will begin the process of setting up a rental through Quinlan & Fabish (formerly Muncie Music Center) and getting all their needed materials to “Strike Up the Band.”
In the meantime, if your family already has an instrument for your child to play, now’s the time to get the instrument inspected and repaired for use in the fall. Please contact me so I can help get an estimate and ensure that your musical instrument is ready to go once school begins!
